Give us your tired garden products!

All King County and city residents can safely dispose of old car batteries, oil, paint thinner and many other household hazardous items at no cost when the  Wastemobile comes to Sammamish August 15th through the 17th at  Eastlake High School, 400 228th Ave. NE., Sammamish, WA from 10 to 5.

Twenty five years ago, the first collection of household hazardous waste took place in King County. This collection practice has evolved into what we now call the Wastemobile, a collection operation that travels from city to city. In that time 450,000 people have taken over 32 million pounds of household hazardous waste for safe disposal to the Wastemobile.

To celebrate this amazing achievement, we are holding a random drawing where three people will win either an iPad, a $100 gift card to REI or a $50 gift card to the nursery of your choice.

To enter, take a picture of yourself and the hazardous waste you will return to the Wastemobile by August 25th. Then post it here: http://bit.ly/1nK7xvp.

  1. This is really cool. We need WasteMobiles all over the sate! I think many members of the community wouldn’t mind paying a small disposal fee, like garbage pick up, on a regular basis in the the area. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Great idea!]
